  • The Company of Jesus church

    This architectural jewel is the most striking site in the historic center and was built in colonial times. To this day it remains in perfect condition. You will be captivated by its great beauty and historical splendor, with a construction from the XVI century. Inside you will be able to observe its architecture, carved in stone and with meticulous details. Its interior is impressive, with walls decorated in gold leaf, paintings and sculptures of baroque style that shine as you pass through.

     

     

  • Panecillo Viewpoint

    The "Panecillo" is an admirable figure of the Virgin Mary that stands proudly over the city and offers an unparalleled view of Quito and its surroundings. Arriving at the lookout point you will be amazed with the incredible view before your eyes. You will contemplate the old town of Quito, with its cobblestone streets, and modern Quito, which contrast with the panoramic perspective.

  • The Middle of the World

      Considered an icon of Ecuador and one of the most visited tourist attractions, the monument is located exactly on the equatorial line or equator, from which the country takes its name. It also highlights the 18th century Franco-Spanish geodesic mission, which located the approximate site where the equatorial line that divides the planet into four parts (north, south, east and west) passes.

    Inside the monument, there is a small museum that displays elements of Ecuador's indigenous culture, such as clothing, ethnic groups and samples of their activities.

  • Birds Reserve

    An exciting birding spot, here bird lovers will also recognize this route as the main road to Mindo, world famous for its concentration of birding opportunities. The bright blue sky and dark green forested mountains provided an impressive backdrop to a garden full of flowering plants, low bushes and some trees tall enough to offer interest and perching places for the birds, you can also observe the feeders where the birds flitted among the trees and near the feeder located just in front of a table.
